Introducing our October Guest Designers and As We Gather Together!

Hi all! It's finally time to start previews of the FIVE stamp sets to be released at The Craft's Meow on October 1st!!! We can't wait to show you what's to come... I think you will be delighted! There is definitely something for everyone!

Before we get started, though, I want to introduce to you our two guest designers (aka Friends of The Craft's Meow) for October... Danni Bindel and Iwona Palamountain!!!

I "met" Danni on line in blog world through her challenge blog Flutterby Wednesdays. She quickly became a friend 'cause that's how she is... friendly and approachable and just a whole lotta fun to know! I happily got to know her better when she and Susana invited me to be a part of SCACD's Friends With Heart Challenge blog. I love this girl and her sweet art and how she loves butterflies and fairies and angels! I couldn't be happier to call her a friend of mine and a Friend of TCM! 

In Danni's words: My name is Danni Bindel and I am a stay at home mom to Matthew who is 10 and Annabelle who is 6 7/8 (her birthday is on Sept. 27) and a US Army wife to Sam for 12 years. We are currently stationed at Fort Lewis, Washington. We also have two dogs and a bird to complete our family.

I started scrapbooking about 14 years ago and swore I'd never stamp. Well, I had a workshop with The Angel Company and the rest is history. I've been stamping now for about 6 years and am a wee bit obsessed. I just love to sit and create. 

I "met" Iwona (aka Chupa) through blog land. I think I was first intrigued by her name and then the picture of her with the flowers on her head, which made me think she was from Hawaii... turns out she's from Australia. ;)  Her name and picture started popping up everywhere, and no wonder! Her art is incredible!!! Wait until you see the magic she works with our stamps! 

In Chupa's words: Hello, my name is Iwona Palamountain, you would also know me by my nickname Chupa. I'm a mom to a two year old, sweet girl and a wifey to a very supportive husband. I've been making cards for over two years now, and I love how this hobby enhanced my life. Card making keeps me busy and there's rarely a day that I wouldn't ink up a stamp or cut some paper. I'm grateful to be a part of the wonderful worldwide community of crafters, and for the beautiful friendships that I formed along the way. I'm thrilled to Guest Design for The Craft's Meow. I'm a big fan of TCM's stamps and the Design Team's talents :)
